Millions of Pilgrims Mark Arbaeen In Karbala, Defying Daesh, ‘Israel’, the US ZOG and Saudi Arabia

by Jonathan Azaziah

Feast your eyes on a sight–beautiful, dazzling, shimmering Iraq–that can only be described as breathtaking. Over 20 million pilgrims from 60 different countries entered the holy Iraqi city of Karbala to mark Arbaeen today, the end of the 40-day mourning period for Imam Hussein’s (A.S.) martyrdom. It is not only we Shi’a who are marching and demonstrating on these santicified sands to celebrate the sacrifice, the heroism, the steadfastness and the RESISTANCE of Aba Abdallah (A.S.) and the Karbala 72, martyred at the hands of the maniacal tyrant Yazid (L.A.) on Youm al-Ashoura 680 A.D. (61 A.H.), but also Sunnis, Sufis, Christians, Shabakis, Ezadis, Zoroastrians and even some Hindus too. Regardless of Islamic school of thought or faith, the people of spirituality, dignity and anti-oppression stand as one Husseini unit on Arbaeen because the grandson of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W.) is a symbol of defiance and rejection of despotism for all of humankind.

Deviant, Disturbing Innovations Of Tatbir and Zanjeer Are Promoted By Zionist Media To Spread Shiaphobia

by Jonathan Azaziah

To all my non-Shi’a Muslim brothers and sisters as well as my non-Muslim comrades: DO NOT FOLLOW THE SHAMEFUL ZIONIST MEDIA AND THE EVEN MORE SHAMEFUL ALTERNATIVE MEDIA (here’s looking at your despicable “reportage” RT and Sputnik) ABOUT WHAT SHI’A MUSLIMS DO ON ASHOURA. The bloody pictures that are being promoted across the spectrum of extremist Shi’a disgustingly self-flagellating and cutting their children DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT represent Islam in any way, shape or form, whether the Shi’a school of thought or otherwise. These barbaric practices, known as Tatbir and Zanjeer, are alien to Islam and have been forbidden by just about major Shi’a authority on the planet, including (but not limited to) Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah Khomeini (R.A.), Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlallah (R.A.), Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr (R.A.), Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Sistani, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, Sayyed Hashim al-Haidari and others.

The Quintessential Ashoura Anthem Is Here: “Blood Of The Lion”, Second Single Off “Eternally Husseini”

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Salutations brothers and sisters! On this most revolutionary day, this most magnificent occasion, this 1,336th Ashoura when blood triumphed over the sword–to borrow the expression of Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah–and Imam Hussein (A.S.) as well as his partisans achieved martyrdom at the hands of the vile Yazid (L.A.) on the hallowed ground of Karbala, I present to y’all my soul on wax; my beating, bleeding heart in lyrical form; an ode to Abou Abdallah (A.S.) to end all odes: “Blood Of The Lion”, the second single off my upcoming album “Eternally Husseini”, produced entirely by my extra-exceptionally gifted dear brother Iron Galaxy and filled with the illustrious artwork of Intifada Street founder Mohammad Hamza. This song–which is more like a Hip-Hop Nasheed than a traditional grouping of bars and hooks–doesn’t merely encapsulate the pain of the 10th of Muharram and apply that agony to the difficulties we are warding off today as an Ummah generally and as Shi’at al-Hussein specifically, it bangs like Hizbullah rocketry crashing down on occupied Haifa and making the settlers run for their miserable lives!

Imam Hussein’s (A.S.) Spirit Lives In Yemen: Hundreds Of Thousands Slam Saudi Funeral Massacre

by Jonathan Azaziah

The Yemeni people make extraordinary look ordinary and otherworldly look worldly. They really are that astonishing and truly that brave. To see them out on the blocks of the Yemeni capital in their hundreds of thousands to slam Al-Saud’s massacre of at least 458 innocents at a funeral on those very same Sanaa streets just 24 hours earlier, is not only a reminder of how fantastically defiant they are, nor merely how immeasurably resilient, but how intrinsically Husseini first and foremost. The US-‘Israeli’ Empire is the Yazid (L.A.) of our time and every Yazid needs his Shimr (L.A.), i.e. the mindless, bloodthirsty, dirt-ridden killer who carries out his orders against the Moustazafeen. Al-Saud is certainly the Shimr of this age, inflicting death and destruction wherever Washington and Tel Aviv send it to hurt those descendants of Imam Hussein (A.S.) who carry on his righteous Muhammadi legacy to preserve their homeland, their culture and their religion. And make no mistake, this is not Jonathan Azaziah’s opinion but the view of the Yemeni people themselves indeed. Continue reading Imam Hussein’s (A.S.) Spirit Lives In Yemen: Hundreds Of Thousands Slam Saudi Funeral Massacre

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah Is The Perfect Embodiment Of Imam Hussein’s (A.S.) Essence

by Jonathan Azaziah

This smile? This smile is worth more than every element and currency on Earth amalgamated. In fact, this smile is of such a transcendent value that when it is flashed, all of the gold, silver, platinum and gemstones in the whole of the planet are melted into heaps of molten scrap and rendered to the nothingness, for they simply cannot compare. This fist? This fist contains more might than all of the weapons of all of the tyrants in all of our region; more might than the cancerous tumor that putrefied Al-Quds and claims to have Earth’s 4th most powerful army; more might than the 1,000-base empire that claims the world needs its “exceptionalism” despite the fact that the only “exceptional” thing it has brought the world is exceptional amounts of suffering and ruin. This fist and this smile are everything. And Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, is, indeed, everything. For he is the perfect embodiment of Imam Hussein’s (A.S.) essence. Continue reading Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah Is The Perfect Embodiment Of Imam Hussein’s (A.S.) Essence

Muharram Kicks Off With Bloodshed In Baghdad But “Labaykah Ya Hussein!” Won’t Leave Our Tongues

by Jonathan Azaziah

Labaykah Ya Hussein (A.S.)! And rest in eternal serenity to the Shi’a martyred in the Iraqi capital earlier on this morning as they participated in Ashoura processions. Truly, I would have loved to strictly write that today, the beginning of Muharram, that month of red rain, martyrdom and the rise of saviors, marks that time 1,336 years ago when Imam Hussein (A.S.), the Master of Martyrs, the Blood Of The Lion, the Savior Of Islam and the Original Revolutionary, marched with his holy family and righteous companions, a small party of only 72, into the desert sands of Karbala and achieved martyrdom in the face of an army of tens of thousands led by the sadistic tyrant Yazid (L.A.) which sought to wipe out Islam as we know it; when the Imam and his partisans changed the meanings of heroism, dignity and resistance for all-time.

Happy Birthday Imam Hussein (A.S.)! Let’s Let “Hussein’s Song” Knock!

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Happy birthday Imam Hussein (A.S.)! Before there was Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, Sayyed Abdul Malik al-Houthi and Sayyed Hashim al-Haidari, there was Imam Hussein (A.S.), savior of Islam, son of Imam Ali (A.S.) and Lady Fatima az-Zahra (A.S.), grandson of our noble Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W.), whom all our heroes are descendants of. The Lion of Karbala was the original champion of the oppressed; the original flag-bearer of justice; the original defender of the orphans; the original trampler of tyranny; the original defier of despotism; the original personification of resistance in the physical and the spiritual form; the Sayyed of Sayyeds, the Revolutionary of Revolutionaries and the Master of Martyrs. When the nascent Ummah quivered in fear before the hedonistic, repulsive, shaytanic, drunkard dictator Yazid, Imam Hussein (A.S.) took a stand for Islam and truth, giving his life for our Deen and the pursuit of what is right. Thus, his born-day is a precious, rare-jewel-like gift bestowed on Muslims and really, all human beings. And it is with this that I present to you “Hussein’s Song”, produced by my perpetually-gifted younger brother Jared Azaziah aka Dark Night, off my 2015 record Son Of Kufa Volume 1: Rise Of The Anomaly. I wrote this joint not as a mere musical representation of my own adherence to Shi’a Islamic Liberation Theology, or that of the forces of the Mouqawamah Axis for that matter, but as an anthem for humanity, because the sacrifice made by the Imam (A.S.) in Karbala on Ashoura carries a message of undeniable universalism, hence why Arbaeen (the ceremony that marks the end of the 40 days of mourning for the Imam’s martyrdom) is the biggest religious event on Earth and is attended not only by Shi’a, but Sunnis, Sufis, Ibadis, Christians, believers of other faiths and believers of no identified faith at all. Everyone loves Imam Hussein (A.S.), regardless of their ethno-communal background! The only ones who don’t are those who carry on the legacy of the Holy Prophet’s (S.A.W.W.) enemies and oppress the innocent, the weak and the downtrodden. So for the Imam (A.S.) on his birthday, and all his literal and ideological descendants fighting against World Zionism–the Yazid of our time–on the front lines in Yemen, Syria, Lebanon, occupied Palestine, Iraq, Nigeria, Bahrain and beyond: LET IT KNOCK!
